Comfortable accommodations with a very nice breakfast included. The afternoon complimentary tea and sherry was a nice touch. We, also, enjoyed eating in the hotel's restaurant, Del Charros where we received a $15.00 credit daily. The staff was most accommodating. Charlene Montoya was most helpful particularly on arrival.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was exceptionally good. The Plaza is within walking distance which is great because parking... More

The hotel is located within blocks of the main plaza, which makes it very convenient to sites, shopping, and restaurants. We had a car and did not use it while we toured the local sites. The hotel rooms was spacious with a fireplace. Wood is provided. The breakfast is more than sufficient but not extraordinary. Every late afternoon they provide... More

Great location. Parking is a little "squeezy". The complimentary breakfast is excellent (though we were not offered water and/or juice on one morning) and the $15 credit per day in the bar/restaurant is a nice welcoming touch. We did not book a room with a Kiva fireplace but were given one which was also a bonus. The bed was very... More

The location is absolutely perfect, walking distance to everything! Lovely pool area, though no jacuzzi, restaurant was great, especially the AMAZING breakfast buffet! The room was very comfortable, and I thought it a nice touch that the staff took care of the advance preparation with the fireplace. The afternoon cognac was also fabulous!

This hotel is centrally located to the center of town. The breakfast which was included was one of the best breakfasts have had in hotels. Multiple hot entrees of egg dishes, fresh fruit, pastries, drinks, oatmeal, etc. I particularly loved their chilaquiles which they had one day. Pool was under renovation, thus can't comment.
